I was a patient of Dr. Elizabeth Ward for many years. At first I thought she was a good doctor but I never got better in all the years that I was her patient.
The last time I saw her (2015) I was crying because I had debilitating leg pain for 4 months and barely able to walk.
I had seen multiple doctors and no one could figure out what was wrong with me. She has no compassion.
I told Dr. Ward the situation and she just said I needed a mood stabilizer.
When I refused the medication she said my time was up and handed me a book titled why am I still depressed. I WAS NOT DEPRESSED!
I threw the book in the garbage at the clinic and left. Once I found out what was causing my leg pain I emailed her to try and educate her that just because someone cries it does not mean they need a mood stabilizer.
And just because someone has pain it does not mean they have a psychiatric disorder.
Psychiatric doctors never try and figure out the cause of a patients mental health issues.
There are causes but they just give you a label and drugs. Google 13 blood test everyone with depression should get.
Also, google mental health symptoms and Lyme disease. Lyme, Babesia, Bartonella and CIRS have been the cause of my pain and suffering for 22 years.
This includes all my mental health issues and the labels she gave me.
Dr. Ward has tunnel vision and needs to get educated.
She just wants to give you drugs and does not care about your overall health.
I no longer take any prescriptions medications and I am much healthier now that I am almost done treating the CAUSE.
